Schild Estate GMS 2012

A very attractive wine to stick your nose in. The blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Shiraz throw up some dried florals and strawberry coulis. Flavours are persistent and delicious highlighted by red fruits and raspberry lollies. There's a sprinkle of peppery spice to finish.

Two things struck me particularly, the freshness of the fruit and simple fact there is no oak in sight. All the fruit does the talking.

I tasted this wine in a line up of 23 reds of varying price point and variety and it bashed down the door to grab a spot in the top five.

An impressive drop made even more fabulous by the asking price...$15!
